Once Marvel Comics’ Venom went from villain to anti-hero, writers and artists loved fusing the alien symbiote with a variety of Marvel characters. We’ve seen Venomized versions of the Avengers, the X-Men, and more. But this Venomized Avenger is a step above all the others. The folks at Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys have revealed their new Venomized Iron Man sixth-scale figure. And it’s truly a thing of horrific beauty. You can check out images of this symbiotic Tony Stark right here, as well as read the official description from Sideshow below:
In this monumental collaboration, Hot Toys has invited Mr. Khoo Fuk-Lung, a popular and iconic Hong Kong comic artist to create his own distinctive style of Venomized Iron Man. His design offered an extensive insight into the re-imagined character through unique and incredible visual elements, greatly emphasizing the fine details on the Iron Man armor with powerful drawing attention to the parasitic Venom symbiote; while Hong Kong sculptor Mr. Joseph Tsang has carefully translated the conceptualized design into a realistic collectible with exceptionally fine details.
Venomized Iron Man stands approximately 35cm in height, and is based on art found in the Spider-Man: Maximum Venom series. It comes with newly developed head sculpts. One is a half Venom and half Iron Man appearance with LED light-up function. The other is a Venom head sculpt with two interchangeable tongues. It also has high-structural diecast components and Iron Man armor parts painted in signature metallic red and gold colors.
The arms and legs are partially crafted with vinyl material, painted in black (of course). It also comes with multiple articulated pincers outstretched from the chest, and an LED light-up function on Arc Reactor and left palm. Finally, it has a pair of matching interchangeable hands specially designed for the Venom and Iron Man half. There’s even a special edition in certain markets that includes a symbiote sword. You can pre-order this amazing mashup figure for $425 now at the official Sideshow site. It’s expected to ship from August 2022 to September 2022.
